Tinubu denies testing positive to COVID-19

A former governor of Lagos state and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has denied a report trending on social media that he is battling with COVID-19.

Tinubu’s spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, said his principal has done COVID-19 test 15 times and all results came negative.

There were speculations on Sunday morning about the health status of the national leader of APC, following a publication that Asiwaju Tinubu had been hospitalised in France even before the New Year.

The report, which did not produce enough details to back the claims made about Tinubu, said the politician was battling with COVID-19.

Reacting to the report in a short statement, Rahman said his boss was well and healthy.

He claimed that the report about his principal is “a lie from the pit of hell.”

“Asiwaju is very okay. He is very fine and not sick. He does not have COVID-19. If you must know, we have done COVID-19 test 15 times, each time he felt we had travelled and mingled with many people and could be vulnerable even though he always wore his face mask, but he has been certified negative 15 times.”

Although he confirmed that Tinubu is not in Nigeria at the moment, he, however, said he was not in France as reported.

“Yes he is abroad. Not in France, but in London resting. So you can see the falsity in that information”, the statement read.
